At this point, you may be a little tired of hearing about Oreo‘s game-winning Super Bowl blackout “You can still dunk in the dark” tweet. But that little bit of in-the-moment messaging brilliance was no fluke. While the Oreo social media team’s visual tweet celebrating Justin Timberlake‘s return to pop music at last night’s Grammy Awards won’t start as many conversations about the future of “real time” PR and marketing, it was just as timely and almost as clever.

Did the Oreo team create this little nugget “on the fly” as well? How could they have known that JT would perform in a bow tie? (OK, maybe they watched the red carpet event or checked out the “Suit and Tie” single’s cover. Still very sharp.)
What do we think? Did Oreo just win social media again?
